Recent COVID 19 outbreak has impacted the global molecular diagnostics industry phenomenally. Countries with high rates of coronavirus testing, such as China, Germany, and South Korea, are leading the pack in getting molecular-based testing ready for the market. Diagnostic technology companies are increasingly teaming with electrochemistry, molecular biology, and microfluidics for the development of hand-held portable devices that can leverage molecular diagnostics for this infectious disease - COVID 19.

Additionally, many diagnostic companies are focusing on the development of connected, portable lab to provide on-site care, including molecular diagnostic tests. They are making substantial investments targeting the development of a portable point-of-care COVID-19 test. On the other hand, stringent regulatory policies are significant factors projected to pose challenges in the growth of the market. Nevertheless, increasing emphasis on diagnostic companies would support the market growth during the estimated period.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Molecular Diagnostics Market

The spread of COVID-19 worldwide has dramatically increased the number of suspected cases and the geographic areas where laboratory testing must be implemented and intensified. The molecular testing for COVID-19 has led to shortages of molecular testing reagents worldwide for COVID-19. Beyond supply issues, there are limitations of absorption capacity in several regions, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

Currently Available Testing Kits: Molecular assays and immunoassays are the most widely adopted diagnostics tests for COVID-19. Furthermore, digital solutions are being developed to monitor and track the development of COVID-19. For instance, InferRead CT Pneumonia is being developed by Beijing-based Infervision Technology, which detects lesions from symptoms of pneumonia. Breath biomarkers that can detect and track the virus are currently being developed.

Market Research Future (MRFR) collected data on several factors including implications of COVID 19 Impact on Molecular Diagnostics Market and demographic challenges, showed how it could move forward in the coming years.
